Off-White™ / Fall 2021 / Paris, France

Editor's Notes

After a 16-month absence, Off-White™ is back in the physical arena. The pandemic has been an enlightening time for Virgil Abloh (“I think in the last year I’ve aged the fastest that I ever could have”), who has shifted the brand to a coed, see-now-buy-now model, and introduced the experimental presentation platform, Imaginary TV. Last night, there were all the usual hallmarks of an Off-White™ show: celebrity friends and models on the runway (Bella Hadid, Honey Dijon, Alton Mason), a live performance (courtesy of M.I.A, who performed a medley of hits), and of course, clothes that inspire much online discourse.

As has been the case recently, the garb orbited a more mature, luxurious territory, and there were plenty of good coats and suiting. Intriguing accessory highlights include a bag that had been embedded with a nail — a nod to Braun's design legend Dieter Rams — and interesting headwear that we think may have been made in tandem with Masakatsu Shimoda, who has previously worked with COMME des GARÇONS.

I was writing in my journal that Off-White™ should be adult. What does it mean to be a young brand in its seventh, eighth year? I’ve already said that it’s a youth brand adjacent to streetwear—and I get frustrated if I don’t feel an evolution, and the message becomes monotonous. I feel the world’s changed.

Highsnobiety's Shopping List

Squishy looking briefcase

Looks a bit like an orthopedic neck pillow I bought a while back. Probably even comfier.

Dyed cable knit sweater

Like lying on the grass and watching the clouds go by on a summer's day, or that Louis Vuitton show from a few seasons back.

Massive shirt and pants

Highly flammable. Not to be worn in the kitchen.
